    Just out of curiosity, can people tell what their startup times runing winXP bootcamp are? (I ask because mine seems slow, but no troubleshooting has helped)

    From I press "WinXP" in the bootcamp menu untill I am at my winXP desktop and the little hour-glas icon next to the mouse-cursor is gone it takes:

    1 min 15 sec !!!

    what is your startup-time??

    I am on a MPB C2DUO 2,33 Ghz, 2GigRam, 160 HDD

    I tried just for the sake of it, and get:

    40s first time
    32s second
    43 last one

    But is a really empty installation, with only Visual Studio and nothing else :p

    All test were taken on a MB C2D 2Ghz/1Gb ram

    windows xp is faster than my already sold regular pc, but still is slow compared to the fast boot time of Mac for sure!
